Gutter Girls [The Yellow Teddy Bears]

N.p. Topaz Film Corporation, Circa 1964. Collection of 14 vintage black-and-white still photographs from the 1964 US release of the 1963 UK film.

A exemplary film of pre-"Swinging London," about a group of girls at an all-girls boarding school who wear a small yellow teddy bear on their lapels to show they have lost their virginity.

Released in the US as "Gutter Girls" (1964) by Topaz Film Corp., the company responsible for the distribution of Terence Young's 1960 crime drama, "Too Hot to Handle" (with Jayne Mansfield). Originally released in the UK ("The Yellow Teddybears,"1963) after censorship in the country began to dissipate, the film was instantly packaged at the time as a sexy exploitation film, but it actually served as a serious message to young women about premarital sex.

Set in England.
